Workshop Electrics Basics

After a few comments from various readers about the complexity of my previous thoughts on workshop electrics I agreed to write an article for the shed blog for the readersheds National Shed Week. The article gets back to the basics of a workshop electricity supply from preparation and planning, to digging a trench to the installation of the electrics.

    Seems overly complicated when you could go with an old fashioned lash up?

  2. I did origionally have a lashup provided by the previous owners of the house. A piece of cooker cable was plugged into a socket in the house and strung along the fence. This proved very inconvenient as it was shared with the tubledrier. The fence is due to falldown / be taken down so the cable would have had to move at some point. For a couple of days effort I now have a permanant, safe and reliable connection to the workshop that does not get turned off when the clothes need drying.

    ah ha. Think I’d have disconnected the tubledrier and given priority to the shed. Would save electricity too.
